8:07 am
our highway safe and to identify and arrest drunk drivers who are out there, not something we want to see. >> reporter: the app isn't illegal, and is protected by the first amendment. but he says that tops off for him for writing google and apple asking them to stop making it available to drivers. >> all we're doing is saying you have a corporate responsibility not to help people avoid getting caught or committing crimes. >> reporter: maryland isn't alone in the fight to remove the applications. others like delaware had written software makers too and some drivers say downloading it is out of the question. >> and several us senators are asking the developer to stop selling the app. the company that makes blackberries has already agreed to pull the app from its phone. the situation in japan is growing even more unstable as radioactive water continues to spill into the ocean. it's coming from the crack at a nuclear complex that was damaged in the earthquake and

8:11 am
after all being at the bottom of the bracket the whole time, actually to win. i can't wait. >> no, you could win. right. you can't win, but you could win. are we winning today? transition happened yesterday. it took a little while for the clouds to break. we were in the 30s for much of the day. and then slowly but surely, the sun just kind of came through the clouds and then it came out. it was amazing the attitude change most folks out and around when the sun came out. yeah. >> it got a little breezy. stayed a little cool, but for the most part, we are in. the transition of skies are clear, high pressure is in control, and now the warm ever up is underway. we'll get up to about 60 degrees today and tomorrow just an incredible day. and again timing is everything because it's just in time for the or joel's home opener. right now as you see the sun clearing out, all the clouds in the sky. we are looking at 41. our temperature at dwi marshall. relative humidity at 70%. winds are from the west/southwest at three miles
8:12 am
per hour. 30.04 is your barometer. you can take away. yesterday the barometer was in the 29 range. the pressure is coming up. west/southwesterly wind. that is what's taking over if warm forecast. we are have 32 in oakland. and 41 in come per land. 46 in ocean city and 38 in elkdon. around the immediate metro area, temperatures are in the 40-degree range. we have 36 in westminster in 37 in bellair. we have 43. and 43 in anapolis and 43 down in the nation's capitol from columbia to rock hall. and temperatures ranging from 41 to about 43. uniformly, we have been seeing the shift. we had them come in all over the place. a variable wind about this time
8:13 am
of the morning. you start to see that. that uniform change is all because of high pressure. but down to our south and moving a little off to the east. the high is down to our south, and it is clockwise flow around that high that is alive for that warm air to move in. you could still follow the clouds on the jetstream right on across the country and that is what has been allowing system after system, low pressure system and storm after storm to just move across the region right from the west coast on in. now, tomorrow we'll start to see the clouds build through the afternoon, but until then, the high is going to allow that warm air to just take over the forecast. so the clouds will build through the afternoon, and then they'll be a chance of showers very late tomorrow night and into tuesday and because the temperatures are so warm with a cold front moving through, late on monday and into tuesday, there will be the chance of
8:14 am
very gusty thunderstorms that transsituations. -- transitions. temporarily chus again -- temperatures again start to warm up. hopefully we will start to make this transition where the spring temperatures really take hold and don't go back into the very cold range. we have a small craft advisory. a west wind on the bay at 10 to 15 knots gusting to 20. 733 fair and impartial tim or at 7:44 and your sunset today is at 7:33. so today going up to just around 58. and sunshine, mixing with just a few clouds and because of the disturbances to our west, you can never rule out a chance of a fleeting passing shower but really you don't have any moisture with them. tomorrow the record is 83 degrees. we are calling a forecast high of about 82 and even if we fall a little short of that we'll be in the upper 70s for around the time that the game is underway. so game time temperature is going to be just around 73 to 75 degrees at first pitch at 3:05.
